I stayed at the Hotel Okura in early July 2012 with my elderly mother. We stayed midweek for two nights. We were given room 1124 which was a corner room with two large windows offering wonderful views of Amsterdam. The room was very spacious. It was furnished with twin beds, corner bedside tables (with good spotlight reading lamps), a large desk with chair and a round table with large upholstered chair. The large wardrobe was well placed out of the way of the main area of the room. In the wardrobe there was an iron and ironing table, umbrella, clothes brush, spare pillows, two bathrobes and matching slippers. There was a nespresso machine which could be used for hot water aswell. Various strength coffees and herbal teas were supplied.
I found that I did require my travel adaptor for the electric sockets.
In the bathroom there was walk in shower with choice of large overhead shower or a small movable shower spray and a bath also with a shower attachment. There was a hair dryer, scales and various complimentary toiletries. The sound from the 32 inch television could be heard via speakers in the bathroom.
Breakfast was included in the price of our stay. We found it more than adequate. There was a good choice of fresh fruit and juices, cereals, yoghurts, cold meats and cheeses, danish pastries/croissants/bread rolls/toast and a selection of hot food with eggs cooked to order.
Overall our stay at the hotel was simply wonderful. We wanted a quiet hotel away from the main tourist areas. We got that and we also got very good service. The staff were all very polite, attentive and helpful. We could not have wished for anything more.
